[cheers and applause]. >> al qaeda is still there. they are still a threat. they are a threat in yemen and a threat in somalia. they are a threat as we speak in mali. >> chris: does the president now recognize that al qaeda is not decimated, but is in fact resurging in the countries that leon panetta talked about and what is he prepared to do to take them out in algeria and libya and across the region. >> the president recognizes that. each and every day he is monitoring activity an attempting to disrupt them. >> chris: why in the campaign did he say they were decimated. >> there is no question the core al qaeda leadership in the region has been decimated and you are seeing across the globe grou

and senior political reporter for politico and michael smerconish, a radio talk show host. let me start with you. there is an article today that said why president obama's gun plan may be doomed and said there strong indications that comprehensive legislation won't even see a vote on the house flew. you heard me. wasn't to put him on the pot, but i watched like you since new town and people said things have changed. i have yet to see and maybe you know of a few republican who is said things have changed and maybe it is time to put a man on assault weapons or some of the language ta is different than what we are hearing accusing the president of tyranny a power grab and the other accusations. >> let's separate two things. first of all, if you watch that press conference, a good solid one third was a direct appeal to the american people. he repeated himself over and over again. you heard congressman larson on the talking points and common sense. this is only going to happen if the american people want it to happen. you are going to see i think the president is prepared to use capital on t

. obama seems to be moving forwards that away from the deal cutting. >> maria theresa, glen is talking long game, but in terms of the short game, the playbook seems to be one that he has used a lot in the last couple of months/year, i'll say, which is vault over congress and take it to the people and make them move however incrementally. the question is do we think is that can happen? can he have that kind of win on gun control 1234. >> he did exactly what he should have done. obama care, he said i'm going to go to washington, i'm going to go to capitol hill and negotiates inside, and people will come with me. what he is saying is he is basically drawing a clear line in the sand. this is where i stand. the american people, i'm going to -- i'm going to speak to you directly, and i'm going to go ahead and volley it over to the senate and they'll pass it. this is not my doing. >> hopefully they'll introduce it to the floor of the senate. that in and of itself will be -- >> i think the fact that reid said he was luke warm to the response and didn't realize, wait a second, this is a bad pr
interesting piece in politico today talking about the breaking of the obama role. there was the breaking of the hastert rule. you say, a i will read to you your own words -- >> i love this part. >> this is the best sort of awkward, and also semi-embarrassing and charming part of the show. democrats have jokingly referred to what they call the obama rule enshrining the president's practice of not forcing legislative action on anything no matter how noble that can't pass both houses. he now appears willing to burn political capital by pressuring senate democrats to vote for a measure that is likely to die in the house. a symbolic gesture that sets the stage he hopes for more meaningful ones. i read that, and i thought am i depressed? you seem to suggest that there is failure built into these proposals, and that this is a -- >> this is something that the left has -- remember during the health care debate. obviously we talked about the public option. there has been a sense at various points that he backed off the tough fights because he knew he wasn't going to be able to turn a quick deal. t

with a national day of service. president obama wants americans to take time out to volunteer and also to give back. mr. obama and the first lady spent the morning visiting burrville elementary school in dc, helping out by filling book shelves and talking to volunteers at the school. this year, as it has been since 2009 when president obama first took office, the administration is trying to expand the concept of volunteerism. fox 5's john hanrahan was at the national mall and is now in the newsroom with the story. >> reporter: i've been wondering what the enormous white tent is at the corner of 14th street and the mall. i'm told it is a staging area. today, it was indoor part of the inauguration. thousands of people were invited inside the tent to consider making a commitment to volunteerism. ♪ >> reporter: yolanda adams made her pitch with a song. ♪ i'm going to do my part, yeah! ♪ >> reporter: chelsea clinton personally visited a booth to help the youngsters there write letters to sick children. and actress eva longoria appealed to a crowd of thousands to help improve the nation by vol
. you know, in policies, kind of according to what president obama wanted to do yesterday. >> let's talk about that. the president unveiled plans to curb gun violence yesterday. i want to listen to part of what he said. >> okay. >> congress should restore a ban on military style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. the type of assault rifle used in aurora, for example, when pared with a high-capacity magazine has one purpose. to pump out as many bullets as quickly as possible. >> it looks unlikely that the president will get ab assault ban by the senate. how do you feel about that? >> you know, just the fact that he is hearing our plea not only from aurora, but from newtown, from tucson, from all of these different places, you know, our pleas are being heard, and that is that we hope that, you know, other -- there are other people out there every day, getting killed, and we're trying to c b curb -- get some kind of policy in place so 34 people aren't affected every day due to gun violence. >> almost two weeks ago, you mentioned what would help you heal if cinemark would

have chuck todd and "the daily rundown." we'll see you tomorrow. >>> capital offense. president obama puts congress on notice with his push for expanding gun regulation. can his supporters cobble together enough votes on california total hicapitol hillo get what he wants. we'll talk to stanley mcchrystal. find out what the man who led the u.s. mission in afghanistan has to say about his ouster. president obama's pentagon pick and a lot more. >>> and 2013 kicks off with another sports scandal. suddenly, a tear-jerking tragedy for one of college football's brightest stars turns into a twisted tale of lies. >>> good morning from washington, it's thursday, january 17th, 2013, this is "the daily rundown," i'm chuck todd. we couldn't ignore te'o. the first read of the morning. the president didn't just roll out a new set of gun proposals. he launched an emotional campaign to try to get congress to act, devoting more time lying out the need for new action on guns than the plans themselves. using every tool at his disposal to tap into public anger and grief about gun violence. in front of an
. >> president obama of course promised in his first term to take a leadership role on immigration reform. it has been disappointing to many he did not get that moving. he has pledged again to do so. he talked about he wanted to see a bill early on. now he has introduced ideas for gun control. he has another debate over fiscal policy. what does leadership mean in your mind? what to do you want to hear in the state of the union? or is there a better idea something would come from the senate and the president would take a support role? >> it is a good question. part of the problem -- the answer is not another great speech about immigration reform. we need action. this is what happens when immigration reform is important but it is not the number one issue. you can keep on telling it the could you have to take care of the fiscal cliff, which will -- looks like it will go all the way to the end of that term. i do not think it's going to be over soon. guns, i think that has surpassed immigration reform on priorities. i'm not making a judgment. i'm trying to state some facts. you are right, and this has
in the sky, this is common talk on the right, his presidency and barack obama and some of his issues. what i'm surprised by, and i respect mark a lot, there's so much whining going on here coming from the right about barack obama now fighting hard for the things that he believes in. you guys thought he was a wimp. you guys didn't think he was going to fight for the the stuff he cared about and now that he's fighting, you're whining about it and that's a sign of a losing political party. >> megyn: go ahead, mark. >> i'm not whining about anything, unlike his immediate predecessors, barack obama is not interested in bipartisan. compare him to george bush and bill clinton. george bush reached across the aisle with ted kennedy for the the no child left behind and bill clinton reached out to republicans and worked with them to pass the north american free trade agreement over objection of majority of democrats. where are barack obama's bipartisan achievement and legislatures he passed working with republicans against democrats? not a single issue he stakes a claim against his own party for the go
is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. president obama is targeting the rights of law-abiding citizens instead of what caused the violence. that is a very strong response from someone who's talked about as a 2016 potential candidate. >> and he also accused the president of abusing his executive power in the 23 actions. when you read the 23 actions, frankly, these are very weak directives. there's not much more the white house could do. they've got a whole bunch of things out there, but to call it an overreach is a big, big stretch there. but you're right, andrea, that's presidential politics. the most important responses, though, on this front have come from the two people in charge of putting legislation on the floor of the house and the senate. and speaker boehner's spokesperson said we'll be happy to look at any proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not going to vote on anything unless they know it can pass the house. here we are, stalemate. >> exactly. >> back
'll talk to timothy burke editor at deadspin.com, what an amazing piece of journalism they did. >>> president obama told the families of the victims of sandy hook he would take action. now he is. yesterday the president moved to tighten gun control laws and called on congress to do the same. he signed 23 executive actions that do not need a congressional approval, but he asked congress to ban military-style assault weapons and expand background checks to include all gun buyers. many members of congress however are lukewarm to the proposals. >>> boeing is taking a global hit, the 787 dreamliner grounded in europe, japan, and now here in the united states due to a potential fire risk from the onboard lithium batteries. united, the only u.s. carrier flying the dreamliner says it inspected all six of their 787s and insists they're safe but the company will comply with the faa order. >>> this just in to cnn, the international olympic committee has confirmed they have written to lance armstrong asking that he return his bronze medal. he won it for cycling in the 2000 olympic games in

president and certainly president obama with their strength of the office and going around the country and talking to americans which basically agree with the president, it's going to be up to the people across the country to talk to their members of congress to make sure that we and get this done. this can save lives. we've saw that. when the large magazine clips, which i've been reintroducing ever since 204, when that ban was in place, we did not see these magazines out on the streets. and they were very expensive because they were rare. we can do that again to cut that down. we're not going to be taking away anyone's right to own a gun. the supreme court already did that. but with the president laying out what he did, in a very holistic way, by the way, by working with our schools, making sure we have community policing, have psychologists. it's going to be up to the schools to make the decision on what they want, but we should be there to help them. ifwe can't protect our children from school or someone going to the movies, i think that has hit the heart of everybody in this countr
. six of those candidates lost. they spent more money i think on defeating barack obama because he was going to erase the second amendment from the constitution than they've ever spent to defeat anybody before, yet there he was today at the white house behind the podium talking about reasonable common sense gun laws. >> i thought the nra's advertisement lambasting the president for the security around his children was particularly offensive and a new low even by the leadership of that organization standards today. >> you know, we talked to nra members and we talked to gun deal. >> and we poll them. the truth is the average nra member has not been very happy with the performance that they've been seeing out of the nra's washington lobbyists lately. nra members are people who hunt, who want to defend themselves and who want to be left alone, like much of the country. the nra's washington leadership lives and breathes for an entirely different purpose these days. they're selling guns and they're raising money and they're trying to elect republicans to congress that is the bottom line.
he was the victim of somebody's sick joke. others aren't so sure. just ahead, we are going to talk to the reporter who broke this story coming up. >>> then president obama set to launch a campaign-style push to gain public support for his sweeping new gun control efforts. the national rifle association is vowing the fight of the censure troy block them. we are going to talk to the nra's president. >>> and an inside look at scientology. in an exclusive interview, oscar-winning director and former scientology member, paul haggis, says he thinks the religion is a cult. the church says haggis has not been an active member in years and dismisses him as "the hypocrite of hollywood." we will hear from paul haggis and talk to the author of a new book that explores the ties between scientology and hollywood. but we are going to begin with breaking news what could be dramatic developments in that hostage situation involving americans in algeria. nbc's michelle kosinski has the latest for us in london. michelle, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, savannah. this is changing by the minute. t
'm going to sign these orders.
